View Full Version : To dye or not to dye?

I know many of you ladies have your plans for winter hair all ready for action. My plan is to wear buns, some with kinky/coily peices on them, covering my real hair (and ends). I saw some really nice looking kinky twist hair that I think would make for a really cute bun. The problem is that I have red ends from a previous dye job. I am trying to retain my hair's health and grow it out a bit, so I have been avoiding re-dying it. I was thinking about dying it black, however, so I can easily match some kinky peices.

Is it true that dying your hair black is less damaging than lighter colors because of lower peroxide levels? If I am going to wear a kinky piece, do you think that it's better to leave my hair the color it is, and just make an attempt to hide the red parts of my hair? For example, when I wear a ponypuff, you can still see some red right before my hair is actually in the ponytail holder.
